Re: Bear is Professor Frink from The Simpsons
Okay, thanks. Personally, I dosed about 250 times - most were double-dosages. 1974 would be my last time dosing voluntarily. I was spiked a few times in 1976 when I was on the road as soundman. Like Bear, that's me.

sums it up this way, Bobby says: “In the old days, we’d wake up every day and play… When we were at the Potrero Theater, we used to go in every day and play.

From 1971 - 1973, I went to Rochdale numerous times. I vividly remember taking doses to stay awake while driving all night up the NY State Thruway to get to Rochdale College. This was the place to be in Toronto during the late '60s and early '70s. Rochdale was the home of hippies, utopians, acid heads, exotic dancers, bikers, flower children, American draft dodgers, Portuguese draft dodgers, feminists, communards, lost souls, found souls, kids, Krishnas, irritating primal screamers, slackers, drifters, grafters, and drug dealers of every size, shape, disposition, and level of intelligence and style. According to the CBC Archives, by 1971 Rochdale had become known as "North America's largest drug distribution warehouse." Hash, pot, and LSD were in large supply.
